A hit-and-run crash closed down multiple lanes of traffic at North Academy Boulevard and East San Miguel Street for several hours Saturday night. 

Investigators say a driver turned left in front of a vehicle that was traveling north on Academy Boulevard, and then fled.

A passenger in the northbound vehicle was treated in the hospital for non-life threatening injuries, police said. 

A "fresh fluid trail"leading to a nearby apartment complex eventually led police to the suspected hit-and-run driver, who was arrested, police said. 

The driver had yet to be identified by police Saturday night. 

Northbound lanes of Academy Boulevard were closed between Galley Road and San Miguel Street, and eastbound lanes of San Miguel Street were closed while police investigated the crash.  

Gazette news partner KKTV reported that the crash happened at 8:30 p.m.
